Caption: Hooke on Hevelius. Title page from 'Some Animadversions on the First Part of Hevelius' (1674) by English scientist Robert Hooke (1635-1703). This work was a criticism of a work a year earlier (Machina Coelestis, 1673) by the Polish astronomer Johannes Hevelius (1611-1687), where Hevelius described his observatory. This title page refers to Hevelius as 'honorable, learned and deservedly famous' and his position as Consul of Danzig. It also refers to Hooke's fellowship of the Royal Society, and his position as Gresham Professor of Geometry. This work was produced for the Royal Society by London publisher John Martyn.
